Remove Tabindex for HTML Elements or Remove Tab Focus in Controls

Sep 28, 2014

Here I will explain how to remove tabindex for html or controls or remove tab focus in controls or html controls.

In previous articles I explained
jQuery regular expression to validate url without http(s), regular expression to validate phone number in jquery, regular expression to replace all special characters with spaces in c#, regex email validation in c# and many articles relating to validation, JQuery. Now I will explain how to remove tabindex for html / controls or remove tab focus in controls.

To remove tabindex for any control we need to set tabindex="-1" like as shown below

<input type="text" id="txt2" tabindex="-1" />

If you want see it in complete example need to write the code like as shown below

<html xmlns="">
<title>Remove Tab index from html elements</title>
<form id="form1">
Test1:<input type="text" id="txt1" tabindex="1" /><br />
Test2:<input type="text" id="txt2" tabindex="-1" /><br />
Test3:<input type="text" id="txt3" tabindex="2" />
Test4:<input type="text" id="txt4" tabindex="3" />

Live Demo

To check live demo place cursor in first textbox and click tab cursor will skip second textbox and will moved to third textbox because we set tabindex="-1" for second textbox
